The Route


The Cybi Coastal will be partially way-marked and will follow the paths, tracks, beaches and coastline of the Welsh national/Anglesey Coastal Path. The entire route passes through magnificent coastline scenery with fine views of wide bays, sandy beaches, dramatic cliffs, the famous South Stack lighthouse and the summit of Holyhead Mountain.

Participants will be chip timed by our timing partner and we will provide split times and finish times for all participants after the event.

Cybi Coastal Marathon is a non-profit event and we cannot offer deferred places to other events. We allow transfers of places to other runners up to 4 weeks before the event. Email us for more details.

Eco Information

For the last 2 events we have been as green as we could be, using fully compostable/biodegradable cups at our water stations and refraining from using any single use plastics as far as possible.

We are trying to improve on this for the 2020 event. As such we are going disposable cup free at the CPs.
We are asking that all runners bring their own water bottles or collapsible cups for the event.
We will have a limited amount of collapsible reusable running cups available to purchase on the day at registration.
